I guess I let things get out of hand since my husband died (4 Yrs ago) and now I feel strong enough to put down the Ben & Jerry's and start fresh. At first I stopped drinking and smoking, then started the diet. (Thought I'd lose my mind) Now, I'm smoking some, but dieting better. I've actually lost 10 LBS! When I get hungry (or crave a smoke) I crunch on celery. I'm beginning to feel like a rabbit, but still motivated.

Atkins talk
Also go to the health food store and purchase salt that contains minerals, i.e. Celtic Salt Brand. And if you prefer you can get some chicken broth too.

Those nacho cheese ball things are horrible! My mother in law likes them and gave me a pack and I could barely choke down the whole thing!
